Identifying hail damage to your roof is very important. Whenever a hailstorm impacts your home, you are at risk for future roof repairs and a damaged vehicle. During a hailstorm, the roof of your home, and any personal property are at high risk of being damaged. The biggest issue with the roof covering your home is that it is impossible to protect it from hail. To protect a vehicle is very simple, it’s possible to move the vehicle inside a garage. In contrast, a roof is at least 1 story tall, pretty slippery during a hailstorm and a steep roof, not to mention you are the main target for hail hits. Although hailstorms have a destructive perception, the damage can considerably vary from home to home within the same neighborhood.
Throughout this post, we will discuss a different type of factors that can impact your home during a hailstorm. Also, we will provide a few tips on how to identify hail damage to your roof whether you have an asphalt shingle roof or a different material roof such as sheet metal roofing system.
Different kinds of shingles can respond differently to hailstone hits. For example, wood and slate hail hits can look unique compared to composition or asphalt shingles. It is a good idea to learn the difference so that you can identify hail hits to your roof shingles.
With all the various factors that are in a hail storm, different damage can be mistaken for hail damage. An example of this is when a home does not have proper roofing ventilation. The shingles can start to blister creating damage that can be mistaken for hail. The extreme sun and heat can also be brutal for your roof, so with age and high exposure to heat, a hailstone hit can be easily mistaken. These defects are normal wear and tear. People easily mistake them for hail damage. Manufacturers could also have batches of defective shingles. And if you somehow get the defected shingles, one can easily confuse normal manufacturer defects with hail damage.
